Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
for Children
(RCIA for Children)

Children 7 years old and older who have not been baptized are welcome to explore their relationship with Jesus Christ and the teachings and practices of the Catholic Church through our RCIA for Children process. This process has several components:

1. Weekly grade-level faith formation sessions on Sundays:

  • 2nd - 5th graders will meet from 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
  • 6th - 12th graders will meet from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

2. Monthly RCIA/C sessions on Sundays from 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.

3. Participation at the 10:00 a.m. Mass.

In addition, children 7 years old and older who have been baptized in the Christian faith, but are seeking full communion with the Catholic Church by receiving the sacraments of confirmation and first holy communion, are also welcome to join in the RCIA for Children process.
